Forner TSO here: Your bag will not look the same in every scan. Depending on the angle the bag is sitting at, and how items "stack" in the image, your bag could look quite different from one scan to the next.

In my experience, playing cards may have looked odd due to the fact that many are plastic-coated paper, which can show up as an odd color on the x-ray. Also, it could have looked suspicious due to an item that was positioned in front/behind it in your bag.

Most average public schools probably cost 15-20k per yr. It's still a lot, but it's manageable.

It's not so much a band-aid as a necessary reality. Predators are killed because they destroy livestock. That won't change so long as there's livestock to protect.

At the same time, next to the animal plot, there's likely 1000s of acres of corn, soy beans, or other crop that the game animals can easily chow down on.

This is the perfect storm: too few predators to manage wild herbivores, and too much easily accessible food for those herbivores. Pretty soon you have a huge population that can easily pass disease within itself, and you have animals getting slammed left-and-right by cars due to overpopulated territory. Hunting does a lot to curb the problem.

Glad you're doing well!

I'm very late to the game on this one, so I doubt I'll get an answer, but it's worth a try. One thing I've always wondered about organ transplant recipients is what the long-term lifestyle repercussions are after receiving the transplant. Are there certain things that you will no longer be able to do, eat, drink, etc? Obviously receiving the transplant, and therefore being able to continue living, far outweigh any of the possible negative consequences of a successful transplant, but I've always wondered about that. Also, will you be ok immunosuppressants for the rest of your life, or are they tapered off after you show no signs of rejection?
